INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the Extra Curricular Activities booklet from Berlin Brandenburg International School 2018/2019
Term 2.

We strongly encourage all students to participate in this program as it offers a unique opportunity to meet
new friends, be a risk-taker, and share and learn new passions whilst having fun! The program enables students
to learn new skills and fully become part of our international school community.

The ECA program aims to further open the minds and eyes of our students, to provide them with something
new and challenging to look forward to. We are therefore excited to be able to offer such diverse activities as
chamber music, international award, athletic activities, home language academy and many more activities. In
Term 2, we have added a variety of new ECAs, including 10th anniversary of BIMP, Circus, Coding Beginners,
Ecology and Illustration, Electronics, Feminist History and Contemporary Art, Kids Yoga, Life Drawing, Maker:
Kapla, Masks Workshop, Tennis, student-written play “The Storm Guide”, “The Coming Out Monologues”,
United World Schools and many others.

We are very fortunate with the generosity and commitment of the BBIS staff, as well as external and volunteer
instructors; however, it is sometimes impossible to offer activities all year round. This does however, provide
our students with a greater opportunity to try different activities throughout the year.

Sincerely yours,

Yuri Samozvanov
ECA Coordinator

ECA Registration Link

Primary School Students

IMPORTANT: All Primary School students should meet in the Aula at 15.00 on the day of their ECA.
Student attendance will be confirmed before the ECA Leader collects students and walks them to their
activity. ECA Leaders will then walk relevant students to the Late Bus upon finishing at 16.30.

Dress Code – Sport Activities

All participants of sporting activities are expected to wear appropriate, functional clothing. Indoor activities
require non-marking, clean indoor shoes.

Commitment and Absences

There is an expectation that once signed up for an activity, students attend the activity for the entire length of
the term. If circumstances prevent students from continuing or coming to an activity, we ask you to inform
the ECA Coordinator ​(eca.coordinator@bbis.de)​​ and​​ the activity leader in advance.

Please email your ECA activity leader and the ECA Coordinator (eca.coordinator@bbis.de) if
your child will not be at their scheduled ECA due to sickness, absence, etc.

                                                                                                                   6

Costs

The majority of ECAs will include a moderate contribution to partially cover the costs they generate. The
costs for most ECAs are split into three (3) categories, and will be as follows:

FREE: ​No up front charge – there may be some small costs involved, but it will be clearly stated in the
booklet. There are a number of activities such as lunchtime ECAs that are free.

PAID:​​ ​This is a ​yearly flat fee.

If starting in Term I for the full year, the fees will be
         160 Euros for 1 ECA once a week per term across the whole year
         280 Euros for unlimited ECAs across the whole year

If starting in Term 2 only (January 2019), the fees will be
         105 Euros for 1 ECA once a week per term across Terms 2 and 3
         180 Euros for unlimited ECAs across Terms 2 and 3

If starting in Term 3 only (April 2019), the fees will be
         50 Euros for 1 ECA once a week per term for Term 3
         90 Euros for unlimited ECAs for Term 3

A similar number of activities will be offered in Term 3. The annual flat fee is based on the experience that
most students take one or several activities all year round. Therefore, the payment process for parents
becomes a once-a-year exercise to simplify the process.

The following refunds will be returned to your account in case of dropping ECAs after Term I or
Term 2. Please send us a refund request via email to ​eca.coordinator@bbis.de​​ .

        Paid for one ECA: 50 Euros refund per term.
        Paid for unlimited ECAs: 90 Euros refund per term.

EXTERNAL​​: ​Up front charge direct from the instructor (not the school). There is ​NO free trial period
for this category. If a student does not continue after the week trial period, a payment for the 1​st week will be
required. External instructors will provide you with a contract to complete and inform you directly of the
payment details.

Cancellations only within the first week of each Term.

If your child started an ECA and does not want to continue beyond the first two weeks, you can withdraw
without costs. To withdraw, you need to send an email cancellation to the ECA Coordinator.

                                                                                                                7

Late Bus Information

There is no additional fee required for extra buses that run exclusively for ECAs that finish at 16.30.
The late bus is available to Early Education, Primary and Secondary School students. There are late buses on
Monday through to Friday.

The late bus leaves school at 16.45. This bus will follow a strict route and time schedule. Normal school bus
rules, as printed in the school handbooks, also apply for the late bus. ​Early Education and ​Primary School
students will need to be collected from the relevant bus stop where appropriate​​. If no one is there
to meet the student, they will be returned to BBIS (unless stated), whereby the relevant person will be
contacted.

Please indicate online which stop your son/daughter will be getting off at.

Any students waiting to be picked up will need to do so in the Atrium of House 3 (unless other arrangements
are made by the instructor).

Art is a tool to understand the world from diverse and unstructured perspectives. It helps us assimilating our
surrounding from another point of view and constructing our criteria on creativity and self-expression. Early
access to different art forms enables our children to grow into more empathic and sensitive human beings.
During the course, we will learn about different the culture's approach to nature and the symbolism of animals
and flora within diverse religions and cosmovisions. Based on the different legends of nature’s origin, rituals
and ways of understanding life we will develop a collective drawing and illustration exhibition. We will use
drawing and illustration as a creative tool to understand other cultures, respect for nature and diversity.

Soccer fans around the world admire the Dutch style of play. Players like Johan Cruyff, Marco van Basten,
Dennis Bergkamp, Clarence Seedorf and Arjen Robben have set a standard for exciting, creative play. For the
past 40 years, the Dutch have played a vital role in International soccer. Dutch players have been and are
currently playing for the most successful European clubs.

How did a tiny country like Holland become a world soccer leader? One major reason is that coaches in the
Netherlands are high-level educators who truly teach the game. In addition, the Royal Dutch Football
Federation (KNVB) is a global leader in creating development programs for young players.

At its foundation stands Rinus Michels, the man who ‘invented’ Total Soccer in the ’70’s. His ideas are the
basis of all the Dutch Soccer School programs, founded on the premise that the player’s ball control and
tactical development always receive top priority in training.

This unique program goes far beyond the static regimented training environment employed by most camps.
Technical and tactical instruction are conducted through the application of small-sided games so that players
experience a training environment that replicates the real game.

Under the watchful eye of our Dutch trained coaching staff, players will begin to know what to do, how to do
it and when to do it — at the technical speed that is required in the modern game.
We group players according to age and ability, making their experience challenging and enjoyable. Based on
staff assessment and recommendation, individuals may be moved to higher-level groups as the school
progresses.

Our programs are designed to help players achieve their maximum potential through progressive exercises
that are individually challenging, as well as appropriate to the age and ability of each player.

                                                                                                         20

Are you always running late for appointments?
Has your dog eaten your homework... yet again?
Does your bedroom look like and smell like a farmyard?
Does your school bag look like a cat has exploded in it?
Fed up with always losing your stuff?
Don’t despair, help is at hand! Perhaps you need to think about joining the Get Organised Group (GOG). We
are a student self help group, which focuses on teaching young people the necessary skills to improve their
personal organisational skills, both academically and personally. All members join on a voluntary basis and not
because either their teachers or parents force them to! All members need to already recognise that they have
a problem with their personal organisation, but are now self motivated to do something about this. The group
in the past has helped many students to remember their homework, keep their rooms tidy and improve their
grades. Our new members’ first organisational challenge will be to remember to just turn up on time for our
first meeting!

Reality is the playground of the unimaginative! Welcome to the BBIS Role Playing Games Club (RPG Club).
We meet once a week on a Wednesday after school for two and half hours of tabletop/pen and paper role
playing gaming. We were founded by IBDP CAS students in 2012 and our group is organised by Mr. Gregory,
who helps to supervise the club and runs some of the games. We offer members a chance to draw upon their
imaginations (rather than their computers) to play tabletop strategic games like classic old school “pen &
paper” role playing games, such as Dungeons and Dragons (D&D), using dice and miniatures. Students are
responsible for purchasing their own figures, dice, drinks and snacks, although you will not initially need
anything, other than snacks and drinks. Free hard copies and pdf’s will be available for all RPG gaming rules on
Managebac, which we also use for communicating and tracking our adventures and character development.
Gaming options for this coming year may include: Advanced Labyrinth Lord (AD&D 1st Ed.), Dungeons and
Dragons 5th Edition and Traveller. The groups may also decide to play: Warhammer Fantasy RPG,
Warhammer Fantasy Battle, Warhammer 40k, Dungeons and Dragons, Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (1st
ed – 5th ed), Traveller, Mega Traveller, Mutant Futures and Shadowrun. Last academic year we had two
groups who where playing Advanced Labyrinth Lord (AD&D 1e), which were run by Tim and Leo, a 5th
Edition D&D group run by Max, and the other group was playing Traveller, a Sci-Fi setting, which was run by
Mr. Gregory. Last years group had two members of staff supervising, 3 volunteer student Games Masters
running sessions and 20+ members, girls and boys, from grades 6-12. Come along and join us for an afternoon
of creativity, high fantasy and science fiction. The sessions normally run from 15:00 until 17:30 and students
who wish to stay until 17:30 will be required to either be picked up or get home independently of the late bus.
All students under 16 years of age will require parental permission in order to do this. Preferential places will
be given to last years members who wish to remain in the club, but new members are very welcome.

                                                                                                              33

Through a balance of high energy and soft, emotional movement research, students will gain a basic
understanding of one of the most socially influential styles falling under the umbrella of Contemporary Dance.
We will begin the first day with contemporary jazz, then the class will be structured to move tri-weekly
through 4 different genres of dance, to be decided amongst the group on the first day based on interest. These
options include contemporary ballet, lyrical, musical theater, classical jazz, contemporary jazz, hip-hop, and
improvisation/choreography. Students will gain self confidence, body awareness, musicality, and lead an active
lifestyle. Through each genre, students will learn proper techniques including extensions, isolations, balance,
and strength as well as more advanced turns, leaps, and jumps. The students will work on small dance routines
for each genre studied and perform in an informal showing during the class time at the end of the Term.

This course is aimed to address beginner/intermediate level students. Attire should be tight fitting and should
not be restricting. Jeans and regular school clothes are not permitted. Footwear should be proper dance shoes
(ballet or jazz soft shoes). Solid colored socks are permitted for the trial class. Hair should be pulled back for
each class. This course is open to females and males.

All students are permitted one trial class. If they do not wish to continue or if the class is full, the parents are
still obligated to pay 16€ via bank transfer to the teacher directly.

For students who have taken this ECA in previous Terms: Class structure stays the same with new warm ups,
music, learned material, and dance combinations.

Final Informal Showing will be held on Friday, March 29th, 2019.

There will be no class held on Friday, March 1st (School Break) or Friday, March 15th (Professional
Obligation).
